3.Ripcord

QAD is the way to go in my opinion. Full containment drop away. Ripcord would be next on my list but I like the QAD better.

I love my ripcord. QAD is very nice too but the only thing that scares me from it was my cousin put one on his bow and it wouldnt drop down every time, and when it did the rest wouldnt fall fast enough so he was having fletch contact so he switched to the ripcord and didnt have any problems. Maybe it was just a bad rest because I havent heard of anyone else with that problem.

#1. Off the shelf. wink

#2. "Cusion/Plunger" style.

Can you tell I shoot a Recurve with fingers? grin

I have the trophy taker full containment. I have never had problems with it.

I have 2 trophy takers a limbdriver and a trophy ridge dropzone on my bows the only one I will not recommend is the drop zone their are a few design flaws where the arrow might not sit in the same place and play in the bar that raises the arrow

I planned on getting the trophy taker, but I went with the ripcord. I love it. When I got a new bow last year, I got another ripcord. Its been very reliable.

Ripcord here too. Not one issue with mine in three years of use on my Switchback XT.

I am in favor of the QAD. I really like the full containment for hunting situations. Have had no issues.

I've had a Vital Bowgear Kaz-away on my last two bows and I've really been happy with that rest.

Thanks gang. Will probably check out Ripcord and Quad. As for the W Biscuit, they work good but raise h*** on your fletchings.

The whisker bisquit was a good rest to learn on. Now it is the Ripcord all the way!

I started on a whisker but now moved onto a Trophy Ridge Dropaway. I wanted a drop away but wanted it enclosed but I do like the Trophy Ridge products

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
